My favorite opening lines are generally found in romantic comedies. So here are a few from my most recent reads.
If one was going to dip one’s toes into the murky, pestilential waters of online dating, an escape plan was critical.
The secret to the perfect life is to always have a plan.
On Sunday I work in sans serif.
Only in Ainsley Jamison’s life would her own letdown find a way to shoot her in the face as retribution for oversleeping.

I rarely read rom com but these are interesting openings, Shortcake sounds like it might be fun to read.
Have a lovely day.
Shortcake is a fun read, if you like enemies to lovers stories. Thanks for stopping by!
Rom-Coms always have the best opening lines! I haven’t read all of these yet, so I found a couple I need to give a shot. I love me some Penny Reid books, though. Hers are always good. I had a different one on my list today, but I love this one as well.
That’s what I thought too! That’s why I chose rom-coms this week. I love Penny’s books too. I can’t wait for the new one with Cletus and Jen.
It’s going to be so fun!
These are some great opening lines! I love how they give you a good taste of the book’s tone. It lets you know exactly what you’re going to get in the story.
Thanks. They sure are fun opening lines for sure.
Love Lettering is on my tbr! I love that first line. <3
